In Table 1 it can be noticed that the difference between the experimental and Watson enthalpy of vaporization values is always lower than 5%.
[gamma]-Lactones show a clear direct relation between molecular weight, enthalpy of vaporization, and retention time.
A systematic evaluation of the dimensionless refrigerant properties revealed that the relative capacity index for a specified temperature lift correlates well with the dimensionless quantity [DELTA][h.sub.evap]/ ([c.sub.p],L,[T.sub.c]) where [DELTA][h.sub.evap] is the enthalpy of vaporization at the evaporator pressure, Cp,L is the specific heat of saturated liquid refrigerant at the evaporator temperature and Tc is the critical temperature of the refrigerant.
